Founded in 1992 by David Perlow, MD, Any Lab Test Now's ultimate goal is to provide customers with accessible medical information-in the form of thousands of available lab tests. Without the need for an appointment or doctor's referral, clients can walk in for bloodwork, wellness screenings, or genetic or DNA testing to determine family relationships and whether or not somebody stole someone else's nose. The clinic can also help fine-tune nutrition or weight-loss plans with allergy testing or lipotropic mega doses of vitamins.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Jonathan Witzke earned his stripes in surgical centers and hospitals before becoming the namesake of Witzke Plastic Surgery, where he and his savvy staff perform an array of invasive and noninvasive procedures.

For injured hands, certified therapist Joan Collins acts on more than two decades of experience with procedures that aim to quell carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, or a thumb war injury.
Wide, youthful-looking eyes free of puffy bags. Smoother skin. A taut physique free of cellulite. These are just a few of the physical upgrades offered at Shu Cosmetic Surgery, a practice helmed by medical director Dr. Steven Shu, his physician assistant Katie McClellan, and his team of medical aestheticians. Visitors to the modern, inviting practice can choose from treatments such as minimally invasive liposuction, natural breast augmentation, and mini face-lifts that lift away deep fine lines. At an onsite med spa, the physician assistant and medical aestheticians perform nonsurgical treatments including chemical peels and laser hair removal.
Safe. Comfortable. If someone used these words to describe a recent experience, one might imagine that he or she spent the day in a friend’s living room or a bank vault lined with pillows.

Reese, the clinic’s skilled staff members pride themselves on "checking our egos at the door each morning," allowing them to care for each patient and approach each scenario with an open mind. Treating varicose and spider veins with a variety of treatments, the staffers help guests attain blemish-free legs, allowing them to progress in their careers as Rockettes or professional mannequin impersonators.

In herbology, the white lily is representative of renewal and purity—as well as fertility. At White Lily Acupuncture, licensed acupuncturists and board-certified herbalists Christine Keller and Sarah Sawyer keep every symbolism of the flower in mind. Using the methods of traditional Chinese medicine, the two healers determine holistic treatment plans that help return balance to bodies. Custom treatment plans that begin with a thorough exam of the pulse and tongue often end with herbal prescriptions or acupuncture sessions to help stimulate the body’s energy flow and pop parasitic balloons clinging to the skin. On the women's side of the lily, Christine and Sarah target their procedures to help relieve everything from morning sickness and migraines to infertility and postpartum depression.

The health-care professionals and paramedical aestheticians enlist Mensa–worthy technology and techniques as they reinvigorate the epidermis or invent entirely new looks. Before asking patients to commit to a particular treatment, the team invites prospective clients in for a complimentary 20-minute consultation to learn more about the procedure, the technology, and the history of the tongue depressor.
